21 March 2022 - Travel Wires

The Caribbean & North America Gala Ceremony 2022 is set to take place at Sandals Montego Bay, on June 14th.

With the occasion, the WTA’s founder, Graham Cooke, declared:

“We are honoured to host our Caribbean & North America Gala Ceremony 2022 at the magnificent Sandals Montego Bay, the home of the Sandals brand, and what will also mark our eighth ceremony to be held in beautiful Jamaica.

“WTA has maintained its position as the industry leader for the past 29 years, consistently proving its value as the global benchmark for recognising excellence in travel and tourism.

“I look forward to joining the most senior travel industry figures from across the Caribbean and North America for what promises to be a fabulous evening, acknowledging those organisations leading the region’s travel and tourism recovery.”

Winners of the World Travel Awards’ Caribbean and North America categories will be awarded at the red-carpet gala event in Montego Bay on June 14th. Voting for all sectors is expected to close on May 3rd.

The ceremony will be hosted by Luxury Included Sandals Montego Bay, a state of the art Sandals resort, located along white-sand beaches and impressive reefs.

“This year’s awards ceremony is a celebration in and of itself, signalling the return of the WTA to Jamaica coinciding with Sandals Resorts’ commemorative 40th anniversary year.

“I have long said that the Caribbean will bounce back stronger than ever before, and hosting the 29th annual World Travel Awards at Sandals Montego Bay, our first ever Sandals resort, is a full circle moment.

“We have emerged stronger together, and it’s time to celebrate those who are a driving force in the tourism ecosystem’s extraordinary comeback”, commented Adam Stewart, CEO of Sandals Resorts International.

With a history dating back since 1993, World Travel Awards celebrates tourism industry excellence and quality standards across all sectors and geographical areas.

World Travel Awards gala ceremonies are usually attended by key travel industry leaders, officials, celebrities and covered by international media.
